    Sorry for the long delay guys.

    Well ive been working on some upgrades... Remember that i mentioned i dont want visible joints, but i didnt want the figures to be static ider, so here is was i was able to come up with:

    Interesting. Did you use a wire inside the plastic to make it bendable?

    Personally, I would have stayed with the solid plastic just because there's less chance of it breaking down over time maybe... Plus you were using magnets for the joints right? So at least the arms and legs could move a little.

    Did you ever get around to making the Filmation colors Catra?

    Great work as always - stay safe and healthy!

    Yes it is wire and i made the first test longer than a year ago, so im pretty sure, it will keep its flexibility; it is not the same material as it was with the solid resin. And testing the material for this long was a must from the very begging, i wanted to make sure my figures have duravility.

    But im always leaving the option for anyone who wants my work, to decide wich way do they prefer their figures.

    The joints are made of resin, im not using magnets on any of them... i though to add magnets but only on the feet, so they can stand alone, but magnets this tiny are quite expensive, plus you have to add a metal base to work, so i quite with that idea.

    Right now i have several pieces on hold... Due to the covid-19 stores had been closed for more than a month, and there are supplies and materials that i lack right now.

    So to avoid not working on pieces that allready have molds made (but i can not complete), im working on pieces with new sculpt, diferent type of boddies and heights.

    That is the reason you dont see me posting updates quite often, i tend to work on sculpting pieces that im aware i wont be casting imediately, and also, there are some others that i ended up modified them, or not even finishing them at all.

    Thank you, You as well!

    You have no problem in hunting old toys, and waiting if new one will be released... you simply make your own.. you got an awesome talent sir.

    Yes, in the back will be a "halo" to represent Light Hope, and it will have a light up feature... At the beggining the desing that i had in mind was bigger and complex, but at the end i decided to go with a much simpler version, totally filmation inspired... Im making this for sale, because i think making OOAK hand made playsets, it is a good way to keep working, earn the money required to be invested and avoid to violate copyrights.

    I place the link in the proper area (market place one) when the time comes for you that may be interest for this playset.

    Ill be doing something similar to this Frozen playset for the interior:
